Calling all nature lovers and community scientists in Texas! 

From April 29-May 2, Texas will join over 200 global cities for the City Nature Challenge, an annual competition to observe and record plant and wildlife species (while safely and properly distanced) at your home, school or a local or state park!

Participating in the City Nature Challenge is easy:

1) From April 29 – May 2, find wildlife in your community—or even in your own backyard.

2) Take a picture!

3) Share your observations through iNaturalist, an app that allows community members to record what they see in nature and interact with other nature lovers.
